Hi All,

I'm selling my former commuter bike (because I don't commute since leaving So Cal), and decided on an R3 to take its place. I'm not a new rider, but new to the state of Washington, and want a light bike for local riding and running errands.

I read reviews on the 4 bikes in the same category, made it through the decision phase and want the R3. And it seems comfortable and fits well (at least sitting on one in the dealer's showroom).

Any recommendations on a good price from a dealership within reach of Port Orchard, WA? I checked with the closest dealer (Brothers in Bremerton, WA) and their OTD was around $6800. I guess that dealer prep can get a little expensive! :|

Within reach means there and back within a day - we can trailer it home if needed :)

Thanks!

"Dealer Prep" = just another way to increase PROFITS!

I bought my new R3 from another state, and rode it home from the dealer! Almost 200 miles.
Good little break-in run! 0:)

That price is a joke. There has to be another way to get one. You are from SoCal at some point. You can see they are $5k out the door. You could have the thing delivered through uship for I am guessing around $200 up the coast. Small bike small shipping price.

I bought my R3 from Ride Motorsports in Woodinville, WA. Brand new was $5200 OTD, although I did get a discount because it had some minor scratches from being transported but nothing noticeable. Friendly Staff, got 10% off gear as well.

That's even more expensive than CA Bay Area otd, dang. Also, check out CBR300R, people say good things about its around town commuter manners.

6800 is high.

I bought mine the very first month it was released when the first model was released last year for exactly 6k OTD. If you can find left over '15 models, you should get them for maybe 5-5.5k. But even if its a '16, 6.8k is high. Shop around.

I just looked at my sales receipt. Freight and Assembly total was 367.35. Then you add tax to that total (bike + freight), and then around 110 for registration and title fee.

I don't see where that extra 800 would be coming from.

Ellensburg Powersports hit me with 5,600 OTD. In Washington, of course.

There are some other options available in the state. If you think Brothers in Bremerton, WA s costly you can switch to wewilltransportit. A friend of mine used it ones and according to him the company is very good and also provided the services at a fair price. You can checkout their site at wewilltransportit.com.

I got the same deal @Ride Motorsports also OTD at about the same price (choose the nice gear) This place was the first time I ever purchased from a dealer. My experience with them has been nothing but prompt and polite. Ask for Bill, he's a kind salesman not aggressive or too good for you. Even my 600 mile break in service was nice. I dropped it off and they finished on time with no hiccups. Good luck!
